RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Texas Sen. Ted Cruz told nearly 250 people in Raleigh Monday that if a presidential candidate has the backing of Washington, run and hide. At a luncheon hosted by the nonpartisan John Locke Foundation, Cruz said it's time for new leadership in Washington.

Cruz's speech focused on his foregin policy views and disagreements with the Obama administration, particularly over the Middle East. He also discussed religious persecution in the area.

Cruz spoke to the group on the same day Florida Sen. Marco Rubio announced to donors he will run for the White House as well. On Sunday, Democrat Hillary Clinton formally announced her second bit for  1600 Pennsyvania Avenue.

Democrat Hillary Clinton Is Running, So Can She Erase 2008 Loss In North Carolina? PDF Print E-mail

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - North Carolina is a bad memory for Hillary Clinton, but if the Democratic former senator, First Lady and Secretary of State hopes to win the presidency, she will have to win the state that handed her a resounding primary loss in 2008.

Clinton lost to then-Sen. Barack Obama by 14 percentage points in May 2008 -- 200,000 votes -- as the bruising Democratic primary made its way into North Carolina.

Clinton made her official announcement on Sunday, saying she wants to be the champion for "average Americans." So far, no other Democrat appears to be heading toward challenging her for the nomination.

On the Republican side, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky have made their bids for the GOP nomination official. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is expected to announce something on Monday, but it's unclear if it will be an official presidential run.

The Democrat polling firm of Public Policy Polling shows that if Clinton and Cruz were the party's nominees, the race would be a dead heat, with 10 percent unsure.
